On Friday, January 11, as part of our pilot project with City Year NH, City Year AmeriCorps members attended a training facilitated by Victoria Adewumi from the City of Manchester Health Department. Victoria gave an engaging, thoughtful and interactive presentation. Learning objectives for young adult Corps members included:

— Practical tools to mitigate difficult situations/feelings when they occur
— Ways to feel equipped to support each other, and the students they serve, in building resiliency
— The ability to better emphasize with each other without the need to “fix” difficult situations
— Feel empowered to advocate for what they need and feel less isolated

Special thanks to Victoria, the City of Manchester Health Department, and City Year NH for collaboration in making this training so successful!
